Im usually a deer hunter but a couple of my friends turkey hunt and it seems like it would be fun so i guess Im gonna start gettin into it. But yesterday i saw 5 hens,2 jakes, and one tom was struttin. They were all scratching and moving in the same direction. This was about 5:00(45 mins till sundown) and i was wondering if they were heading to their roost.If yall could help me out it would be greatly appreciate. Also i went out there this evening and blew my owl call a few times but no response. but the wind is blowing about 30 mph and it is thundering so i dont kno if that played apart in that.

Thanks

hunter

i would guess they roosted close by that does not mean that they will roost there anytime soon again.they may also roost there everyday hard to tell.best thing is to go listen at daylight and see where they are gobbling at.

not always but that is by far the best time to hear them.they will gobble at anytime of day but most of it occurs before it gets really good light.

no they dont always gobble in the morning, \:\( but its prolly your best chance to her one right before daylight ! it was prolly to windy to hear one . when i try and locate one i will call (hoot call, crow call) right as its barely light enough to see in the morning and right at dark, , if you need any help with them birds around shelby forest give me a shout.

thats why you go listen at daylight.if you hear a gobble then you know.It's better to learn where they go after they fly down and be set up there.
